Mail LIstS for State Coordinators

All state coordinators are required to be subscribed to the State Coordinator mail list on Google. It is highly encouraged that the State Coordinators request that their Assistant State Coordinators subscribe as well. The State Coordinator can then share appropriate information with their County Coordinators via their own mandatory state mail list. Since this list is restricted to State and Assistant State Coordinators you must be subscribed by the National Coordinator. To subscribe, send an e-mail to the National Coordinator, providing your name, state and position.
